Weathering With You – Josh’s Review

I love my brother, but I chose the wrong companion to join me for this film. Weathering With You is a beautiful love story that is certain to induce a lot of snuggling with your significant other. My only dilemma… finding a significant other. Anyway you’re not here to read about my love life, so let’s talk about the movie.  After the success of 2016’s Your Name, Makoto Shinkai has returned w...

2040

What will the world look like in 2040? Well, many predictions say the world is going to hell in a handbag and it’s all your fault you plastic-using demon! … However, Damon Gameau has a different narrative for the future. In his new environmental documentary 2040, Damon ponders what the world will look like in 21 years “if we just embrace the best that already exists”. Now we all know that predicti...

Total War: Three Kingdoms

It’s finally arrived, the newest fully fledged historical title in the Total War franchise. Total War: Three Kingdoms is the first in the award-winning series to recreate epic conflict across ancient China. For years Total War has combined turn-based strategy and resource management with real-time tactical battles. With the release of Three Kingdoms we have the introduction of 12 legendary Warlord...

Green Book

Warm and fuzzy, that’s how I felt exiting the theatre after seeing Green Book. This film is a beautiful piece of story-telling that takes a hard look at the racism of the Jim Crow South, through a very personal relationship between two friends. Based on the true story of African-American concert pianist Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), Green Book follows his concert tour deep into the American South....

Kusama: Infinity

The choice to watch a movie can often be a lazy one. Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, we all need to veg-out every once in a while. But if I’m being honest I wouldn’t usually choose to spend my free time watching a documentary. Like most others I presume, my choices will usually fall in the epic blockbuster category. I did recently endeavour to branch out and watch one of thos...

Puella Magi Madoka Magika

Have you ever had someone bake you a cake? Perhaps for your birthday, it’s beautifully decorated, looks delicious and smells lovely. Then suddenly a hand burst out of your delicious baked treat, pulls out your intestines, tosses them against the wall and says, “Look, art!” What’s that I hear you saying? You’ve never had this odd experience? That’s okay, neither have I. But I’m sure I h...

Johnny English Strikes Again

I’m going to do things a little bit backwards here, and give you my score out of 10 straight away. For me, Johnny English Strikes Again is absolutely and unequivocally a 5/10! Because I can’t in good conscience lean towards either good or bad on this one. There’s an internal battle going on here, and it’s tearing me apart! Okay maybe that’s a little OTT, but let me explain. I was ten years old whe...

ClassicaLoid – The reason I’m breaking up with anime

Anime, we need talk. It’s not me, it’s you. Look, we’ve had some great times! Fullmetal Alchemist, Death Note, Kill La Kill these are all highlights of our relationship. You’ve given me unimaginable adventure, epic battles and laugh out loud moments. You’ve been a constant companion, and you’ve even taught me a few things along the way. But things have changed. I know you’re strange, and that’s no...

Hungry Dragon: Eating Humans is Fun!

Look, we all do it! You do it, I do it, she does it, and even he does it, yes… even him. Using your smartphone on the toilet is almost certainly unhygienic – but you’ve got to do something to pass the time. Unfortunately, the new app game: Hungry Dragons has led to 1 or 2 people believing I may be sick… we don’t need to go into specifics here. But the truth is I’ve just been enraptured by the newe...
